THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: TREVIÑO READS FROM RETURN TO ARROYO GRANDE, TALES OF TORRES LOOKS AT DIVERSITY AND THE ACADEMY AWARDS, DON FELÍPE ON PROYECTO 100,000, RICARDO MATTA’S THIEVES AND LIARS, SERG HERNANDEZ ON TRUMP AND RUBIO.
This week Latinopia is proud to showcase our founder, filmmaker Jesús Salvador Treviño in a different capacity–as author. He reads from his recently published short story collection Return ot Arroyo Grande. Our otheR video this week is the trailer for the independent Puerto Rican film Thieves and Liars (Ladrones y Mentirosos) directed by Ricardo Mendez Matta and produced by the husband and wife team of Ricardo Matta and Poli Marichal.
Our bloggers this week are Don Felípe with his Bravo Road and Luis R. Torres with his Tales of Torres. This week Don Felípe looks at a new project that brings in Mexican students to study at universities and colleges in the United States: Proyecto 100,000. Luis Torres looks at the current debate about diversity at the Oscars as it applies to Latinos. By the way, did you know that the model for the Oscar statue was none other than famed Mexican actor/director El Indio Fernandez? Torres also resurrects the on-going debate about police brutality and the Latino community.
Our other bloggers are Sergio Hernández with his Porfi and Arnie strip. This week he looks at the recent debate between Republican party front runners Ted Cruz and Donald Trump–not to be missed.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
